Seattle is still looking to clinch the five-seed, which would set up a first-round matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. Wilson threw for 271 yards on 18-of-29 passing, including a clutch touchdown pass to Ed Dickson in the third quarter. Carson also had both of his touchdowns come in the second half, as he finished with 116 yards on the ground. Doug Baldwin also had a productive day with seven catches for 126 yards and a 27-yard touchdown catch.
Patrick Mahomes may be falling out of the MVP conversation with these last two losses in primetime, as the defeat against the Chargers came on Thursday Night Football. He threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday, but was held to just 83 yards through the air in the first half. He quickly overcame that slow start with 76 yards on the first drive of the second half, which saw him complete all six of his pass attempts.
Mahomes could not lead a comeback late, despite Harrison Butker's 32-yard field goal pulling the Chiefs within seven with 1:20 to play. His attempted onside kick would end up out of bounds, which sealed the Chiefs' fate since they had no timeouts left. Damien Williams finished with 103 yards on the ground, along with a touchdown catch, but Kansas City fell to 11-4 on the year.
The Seahawks will end their regular season on their home field next week when they play host to the Arizona Cardinals. Meanwhile, the Chiefs will also return home to battle the lowly Oakland Raiders.
